Subverse were a late ‘80s Vancouver thrash band who toured with MDC. This thirty-three track CD collects their EP, split 12” and demo. While their metal/hardcore fence riding sounds kitschy in 2012, they play with a newness and sincerity that makes this totally kick ass. If you’ve ever risked life and limb to steal a Metal Blade tape from your older brother’s room while he was in the garage huffing paint, Subverse will hit a pleasure center. Snap it up if you like Voivod and Anthrax.
